Tim Golden is an American journalist. He was managing editor of news and investigations at The Marshall Project, and before that, a senior writer at The New York Times, where he spent two decades as as an investigative reporter, foreign correspondent and national correspondent.

The Mexican president said in his morning conference, on Tuesday Feb. 13th, that he would not denounce Golden because the journalist was in a United States protection mechanism.

López Obrador revealed that he sought to denounce ProPublica journalist, Tim Golden, “as a slanderer,” after the publication of a report in which he indicated that the current Mexican president received drug money during the 2006 presidential campaign.

AMLO said in his morning conference that in the end, he did not do it because the journalist is in a protection mechanism of the United States, but he said that he will not allow Golden to “manipulate the agenda.”

Once again, the president said from the National Palace that he made reference to the publication and took the opportunity to denounce this journalism that is at the service of foreign agencies.

He again complained that after publication he was the target of a bot campaign that led to the report having more than 170 million views.

Then, he revealed that he sent a letter to journalist Tim Golden telling him that he really wanted to denounce him as a forger and slanderer, “but I found out that they have protection from the United States, a kind of immunity.

Obrador indicated that the publication does not show evidence of anything so “it is a vile slander.”

And, he added, since it is false it does not harm his administration.

Later, the president criticized the threats and actions of the governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, in the middle of the electoral process to criminalize migrants and close the border with barbed wire.

Lopez Obrador reported that so far, almost 50,000 weapons have been seized during his administration, 70 percent coming from the United States and half of thi figure from the state of Texas.
